For many New Testament scholars, studying the Synoptic Problem is something to avoid at all costs. It is thought to be both complex and irrelevant. Those who do study it are warned not to allow themselves to be dragged into a quagmire from which they may never emerge, and into which they might drag their unwitting students. But those who have devoted time to studying it find the image of a quagmire unsatisfactory, and a more appropriate one that of a maze. Mazes are indeed sometimes complex, but they present a challenge that encourages the excited adventurer to have some fun. And ultimately they promise, after some extensive exploration, that there is a way through. I think that I have found a way through this special maze, and I would like to take you with me.
